First case in Chitral? Two women injured in acid attack

CHITRAL, Sept 15: A married woman and her mother suffered burn injuries when the woman’s husband allegedly threw acid on them at Shamsabad, near Drosh on Sunday. However, the alleged acid thrower was not a resident of Chitral as he belonged to Lower Dir. Chitral police spokesman Inspector Buzurguddin identified the accused as Sultan Zeb, a resident of Jandul in Lower Dir. He said the accused attacked his wife when she refused to go with him to his native town of Jandul. When her mother came to her rescue, the man threw acid on them. Both women sustained serious burn injuries and were shifted to Peshawar for treatment. The accused escaped the area after the incident. The acid throwing incident is said to be first of its nature in the district while the police station Drosh has registered a case against Sultan Zeb.–Zahiruddin  ]]>
